Greetings Friends, We are all artists striving to make our own special mark..in our own very special and unique way. I don't know about you..but obstacles abound and often challenges ensue on the road to one's horizon..But it's really not what happens to one,but how one deals with it. If U Stay Positive..You'll turn it around! Positivity and Peace!
My Beloved Fans, I see that many of you are so...God gifted with extraordinary talent, but unfortunately as the adage goes..Talent is not enough! You got to see yourself as not merely a performer or musician, but as a Business! Just like you practice so diligently to perfect your musical talent...Get involved in Taking Care of Your Business! I cannot stress this too much. The sad side of this business is, that, so many talented artists were ripped off ,and exploited big time, and unfortunately left with only a "name, but wound up dead broke! Don't let that happen to U. Peace
My Fellow Independent Musicians.. Ginger Wineheart whose album "!00% was solely fan funded is now #9 on the UK charts beating out Rihanna and ColdPlay. It's a Victory for the independent musicians .He was seriously going to quit the music biz for good just before recording his album.:'The future of music is in the hands of the people and finally the responsibility of the musician", he said.. Positivity and Peace.
Today, Honestly, as I was doing my "day time job"..I looked all around me..and the thought occurred to me that ..You have not given up on your dream..but it seems that many of those around me had done so in exchange for something stable..And while it's true that until you are booked to play steadily or signed or cast in a well-paying gig..or you have financial supporters..U do have to have a "day job" so to speak..But think of it only as a 'stepping stone" to enable you to invest in yourself on the road to manifesting your Dream! Dream on!
Friends, As someone one said:"These are the best of times and the worst of times". Or Crisis and Opportunity. With so much upheaval, economic turbulence and the like it can all seem quite bewildering, and for some even "scary". but U if you believe you got an omnipotent and all-wise advocate that can steer you through the storms and to higher ground...Positivity and Peace.
It's a very deep and even sacred thing to be a creator and intimate parter with the expressing of Music! Oh what a night and a bright day that sweet musci can bring your way. And while women and girls are my muse, too.. Music ls eternal..I'm just sayin!
